      Me knowing "what went wrong" isnt likely because I mentioned one of the few actual quotes of this saga..?

      His agent actually quoted that he didn't fail the medical?

      I've no idea about the complexities at all. In times like this with copious amounts of media bullshit and, our now tight lipped club, I simply watch for actual quotes to give mild insight..

      They didn’t have an issue with the knee as it stands now, what they had an issue with the way I understand it is with the type of surgery that was used to repair it. It wasn’t the best repair work and could leave the knee susceptible to future degradation.

      Would something like that not just be down to interpretation though? Just because his knee was operated on in a different way to how they’d usually expect it to be, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not been done just as effectively. The fact he’s come back so strong from it I think is a positive sign, I can’t think of many players from the Premier League having a similar injury and coming back this well.
      Look how we send Lallana off to Qatar, America and Christ knows where for his injuries in the last year and what happens...injured again, same with Sturridge, Gomez, Matip etc. Every player has a risk of injury, shouldn’t be put off just because a player was treated in a different way to how we would want it done.

      Wait....so Klopp can't have Fekir because he's not allowed to spend the money?

      I don't think that's even remotely true.

      Klopp wanted VVD....Southampton slapped us on the wrist and told us to buzz off. Klopp could have bought someone else instead he waited till the winter and went back in and made him the most expensive defender ever.

      Klopp wanted Kieta. RB wouldn't sell....so instead of getting someone else he waits and makes a deal for a transfer a year away because he doesn't want an alternative to Keita.

      Fekir had a knee injury and seemingly is healed and good to go. Except when our doctors took a look at the knee, they realized that the operation to fix the injury was not performed correctly and the likelihood that further injury may occur is higher than you'd like for a player that costs that much. So he looks at the other options out there (not sure who they even are to be honest, other than Pulisic) and decides he's going to go with who he's got (Dybala isn't going anywhere).

      I don't think it's that far fetched. I wanted us to get Fekir as much as anyone and I'd be wiling to say screw it, just spend the money, but it's not my money so it's easy for me to say that. I don't think Klopp is playing games when he says he's ok with our team. It's not how I'd do things, but he's the boss and he's the one whose head will be on the block. If it were me, I'd go in for Dybala or Pulisic and I'd also go grab another CB as well.

      I think the only reason we'd be waiting on outgoings is for the total bodies, not the financials. We simply can't bring anyone else in unless we shift out some dead weight (Origi, Marko, Ings, etc....).

      So you are confident the manager does not want back up for Mo!?
      Any top flight manager to say nothing of the millions who saw the game would conclude that LFC were facing a mountain to climb when Salah was grievously bodily harmed and taken off.

      Back up to Mo? They are 2 completely different players.

      In what context exactly?
      Birth signs?
      Favourite colours?

      He is used by Lyon both as an attacking midfielder or an out and out forward, does not Salah play in a forward position?
      Barring differences in musical tastes also Fekir could slot in if Mo is assaulted again.

      The only backup equivalent to Mo would be someone like Messi or Ronaldo, ie mega mega bucks.

      Fekir and Mo are not like for like. One’s a mid, one’s a winger.

      Shaq is more a backup to Mo.

      Those 2 statements are contradictory.

      We have the money (for the tenth time), if we don't spend it, it's because Klopp doesn't want to.
      I don't know why that is so hard for you to understand.

      Explain - Fekir is used as an attacking midfielder or full on striker by Lyon.
      Whatever disingenuous label you put on Salah he is one of the most gifted strikers I have seen in several decades.

      Back up... Would suggest a similar style player who is just not as good as we have, Fekir wears a football kit that's the only similarity to Mo, he has no pace doesn't play wide and can't beat a man with a trick apart from that yeah your right. However as a number 10 who can spot a pass Fekir is a decent player.

      Fekir is not a striker. I’m not sure where you are getting that. And Mo is not an attacking Mid in any way shape or form.

      The prefix and suffix cancel each other out. Not that it’s important, just an observation.
